Default Help with choosing between Carnival Conquest, Glory or Valor

Hi. Has anyone cruised all 3 of these ships? I have taken at least 7 cruises, but not on these particular ships, but am planning on taking 3 friends on a cruise in June or July who have never cruised before. After trying to decide between this and a Princess cruise, we have finally narrowed it to these 3 ships, but still not sure eastern or western yet either. My main feeling on choosing Carnival was I have cruised Princess before, and it is a great cruise line with beautiful ships, but they seem very low key, and Carnival seems to just have a much more happy, lively environment, and I think they would really enjoy the midnight buffets, singing in the dining room, etc that Princess just does not have. Is there a huge difference between these 3 ships? Any suggestions or tips would be so appreciated and wonderful. We are in our 30s going on a girls trip without hubbies and kids. Thanks!

Thanks for the neat compliment on my slide show.

Here is the link:


After the slide show starts, and it may take a while to get the server going, right click on the slide and click full screen. It is really neat that way.
I had a great time on the Valor Western Caribbean. It was my first cruise, so I can not speak for the other ships, but I just loved everything about the Valor.

Default all of the above

We've been on the Victory, Conquest, Glory and are going on Valor in May, simply b/c we loved these 3 so much we wanted to go again on a similar ship. Feel free to read my reviews of the Conquest and Glory -- I'd do any of these again in a heartbeat. It will likely come down to price and iteniary, but as far as the ships, you can't beat any of them.
